Despite being on a near-last-place team, despite the injuries, and despite the speculation of where he ends up next once he hits free agency, Shohei Ohtani is your 2023 MVP.

In 135 games, the two-way sensation hit .304, with 44 HRs, and 95 RBI. And though he was shut down in early September, his .412. OBP, .654 slugging percentage, 1.066 OPS, 184 OPS+, and 325 total bases led the AL.

Oh, and he also pitched pretty well, too.
